swag bucks

Something new...

So -- have you heard of swag bucks?? is a search engine that offers you the chance to win cool prizes from every time you search. They believe very strongly in rewarding their users for their loyalty and the prizes are their way of thanking us. No registration is required. Try it, you'll be hooked - we guarantee it!

I put my referal code "button" on the side of my blog.  I'd love it if you used my name if you sign up.  BECAUSE, of course, I'd get some swag bucks. 

It's real... folks have used their points to get gift cards... and that's my goal... because one can never have too many gift cards can they?  OK -- that sure sounds greedy.  But if you are already seraching for something on-line  (I sure do), then you might as well get a buck or two for doing what you already do.  Ü 

Have fun!!

Bootcamp for Lousy Housekeepers

Some of you know me... I love a clean house -- but I don't love to clean house. Ü

But I have pre-read some of this book Bootcamp For Lousy Housekeepers by Heidi Schaap, and I'm telling you what -- this Drill Sargent author knows her stuff. When I follow her example, it sure makes something I don't love to do a whole lot easier.

Well -- it's about spring... which means about time for spring cleaning -- so JUST IN TIME, Miss Heidi is going to give away 2 copies of her new book BOOTCAMP FOR LOUSY HOUSEKEEPERS.  I want to WIN!  I want to hold a copy in my little hands.   

I'm blogging about her contest so I'll be entered in a drawing to I may win one of her books.  I read her stuff while the book was in the making -- I want to read what made the final cut.  So -- don't even think of heading over to her blog, or being a fan on facebook, or twitter... because I want my chances of winning to be better.  LOL 

OK -- I wasn't supposed to say that... Actually -- head on over... you may learn some thing new today. Here is the verbage she posted on her blog.
It's just SIX days until spring, and if you're anything like me, I know you're just itchin' to open those windows wide and shake loose the the winter's yuckiness from your home.


To make this therapeutic, if not overwhelming task a little easier for two special Bootcampers, and in honor of reaching almost 3000 visits since my blog began, it's also time for a SPRING CLEAN FLING -- that means I'm giving away one print copy and one digital copy of Bootcamp for Lousy Housekeepers on this Saturday, the first day of spring!

There are four easy ways to get into the running:

1. Follow this blog, and leave a comment letting me know that you have! (Just click the Follow! button on the left and follow the instructions.) (So -- you need to follow HER blog... not mine.)

2. Follow me on Twitter, and leave a separate comment letting me know that you have! (That's HEIDI... not me -- I don't tweet... I'm not a bird).
3. Become a fan of Bootcamp for Lousy Housekeepers on Facebook, and leave a separate comment letting me know that you have!  (Oh -- I did that already -- have you?)

4. Blog about this giveaway on YOUR blog, and leave a separate comment with the link!  (OK  -- I've done that now... thanks for reading friends.)
You can enter one, two or all four ways, but the more ways you enter, the more chance you have to win -- I'll pick the winners randomly on Saturday!

May the Lousiest Housekeeper Win!!   (That's ME!!!  I'm the lousiest!! Pick me, pick me!)  ha ha haaa
